Is today really the first really cold day we’ve had this year? I can never remember the weather from one year to the next, or even one week to the next.  In any event, I was head to toe handknits today and happy about it.

For sure it was cold enough for this kid to wear her new mittens:

These mitties are a combination of a few My Neighbor Totoro patterns I found on Ravelry.  Here is a link to the one on the right: the one on the left is just a fair isle combo of soot sprites and mini Totoro.   And this was a stash buster, using up about two half skeins of Dale of Norway Baby Ull that I had left over from when, well, this kid was a baby.
